Web Hosting Features
It is our goal to provide every customer with best web hosting features available anywhere. Each one of these features below is either installed with your account or can be activated easily through your own personal 24 hour Web Control Panel.

A True Domain Name
Each of our web sites comes with its very own domain name that you decide. You can register a new domain with us or transfer an existing domain to our servers. Your visitors will be able to access your website using either itsyourowndomain.com or www.itsyourowndomain.com.

Your Own Dedicated IP Address (Standard and Premium Accounts Only)
A static IP address means the IP address (the number assigned to your site) never changes. A static IP address provides your site with a never-changing solid address, which allows you to use it when FTPing files, or pinging your site, etc. During the registration or transfer process you will be able to upload or create your website using your IP address.

No Hassle Domain Name Registration
Open a new account and, if you choose, we will automatically register a new domain name for you for FREE! This can save you up to $70 right from the start. When we say free, we mean free. There are no further charges from Internic or Network Solutions. You will never have to pay annual domain fees as long as your site is hosted with us.

Personal Web Control Panel
Your Personal Web Control Panel gives you the capability to manage all aspects of your account and web site in order to make the best use of your options. With the click of the mouse, you can administer your web space, add e-mail accounts, your web directories, aliases, password protection, statistical reporting, your CGI-bin, and some of the extra features, such as site statistics and shopping carts and much more! Your control panel is easy to get to, just go to http://itsyourowndomain.com/cpanel/

Web Mail Access
You can access your email from any computer with an internet connection, anywhere in the world.
Check your email from home, from work, from your friend's house, or anywhere there is a computer with internet access. (great when your on vacations!)

Microsoft Front Page® Extensions for versions 98, 2000 & 2002
If you are using Microsoft Front Page® software to create and maintain your website, you will need front page extensions installed in order to use the full functionality of front page. You can easily install front page extensions at any time from within your web control panel. Of course, if you need assistance, we can install them for you.

FTP Access (File Transfer Protocol):
FTP is a popular method used to "upload" your web site files to your virtual server. You have unlimited access to your virtual server via FTP 24-hours a day to set up and maintain your Web site. You can work on HTML documents, graphics, and scripts locally on your PC, then upload those files to your Web site whenever your ready.
Most web site design programs such as Adobe Pagemill, Dreamweaver, GoLive, HomeSite, Netscape Communicator and NetObjects Fusion use FTP to maintain your site.

Site Statistics
Track your hits, pageviews, most popular pages and referral sites in an easy-to-use web stats program. Just click on the 'site statistics' icon from within your web control panel.

E-mail Addresses
Your e-mail addresses are very flexible. You can set them up as POP boxes which store mail, e-mail aliases which redirect mail to another box, or as autoresponders. You can instantly create easily add email addresses anytime you want (yourchoices@itsyourowndomain.com).

E-Mail Auto Responders:
Autoresponders may be used to send automated responses to incoming e-mail sent to a specific address. An autoresponder could be used to send a standard message to persons addressing information@yourowndomain.com for example.
You can instantly create email auto-responders at anytime you want (yourautoresponders@itsyourowndomain.com).

Your own CGI-bin:
All customers have access their own cgi-bin in which you may place your own custom CGI scripts. CGI is often used to accomplish tasks which are not supported by basic HTML. You may use this directory to set up scripts that you write or find elsewhere on the Web.

Data Transfer
This is the amount of network traffic related to your site. A large number of sites have less than 5000 Megabytes of traffic per month, but popular sites could use many times that.

Disk Space:
Disk space refers to the amount of server disk storage your account is allocated. This space is used to store your html files, graphics, audio clips, POP mail messages, and all other files that make up your Web site.

File Manager
The File Manager is a very powerful feature. It allows you to manipulate all the files in your web site. You are able to create, delete, and move your files. You can also upload files from your local PC to the server in File Manager. Plus, you can edit the HTML in any of your files from this option. Everything you need to manage your site can be found in this feature.

The form-to-mail script takes the contents of a form submission and e-mail's you the results to the address you specify.

Unlimited Graphical Page Access Counters

Our access counter script can be installed on as many pages as you choose at no extra charge. It will display the number of visitors you have had to your web site.

Password Protected Pages
You can use the control panel to specify which users are allowed to access certain pages on your site. When visitors click on a certain URL, they are requested to enter a username and password which you manage through the control panel.

MySQL database support
MySQL is our GNU database of choice. Your MySQL database can be accessed and managed through your control panel.
